The Magic Keyboard with Touch ID requires Macbooks with Apple Silicon to exploit the Touch ID feature but does the keyboard work like a normal keyboard with an T2 chip Macbook? The idea is to buy it to use with an Intel Macbook and future proof it in case I purchase an Apple Silicon mac in the future.
Does the Magic Keyboard with Touch ID work like a regular keyboard with T2 chip Macbooks?
The Magic Keyboard with Touch ID would work with an Intel Mac just like a regular Magic Keyboard. The Touch ID authentication functionality would remain unavailable on unsupported Macs.
You may need a recent version of macOS installed for the keyboard to be recognised and usable with your Intel Mac.
